Legal chief Sretapol Boon­sawat inspected the Jomtien beachfront Sept. 15 and found no hawkers working between Soi 3 and Soi 5.

However, several shop owners were caught setting out retail items on sidewalks. No warnings were given, but Pattaya regulatory enforcement officers confiscated the property and fined them 2,000 baht for encroaching on public land.
